Users of Blackburn with Darwen waste disposal centres are happy with service
12:36pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
ALMOST all of the 500 users of Blackburn with Darwen borough’s two main waste disposal centres questioned in a survey were happy with the service provided.
An on-site poll carried out in June by charity Groundwork at the council’s household waste recycling centres in George Street West, Blackburn, and Springvale Road, Darwen, quizzed 500 users.
It found that 495 were satisfied with the service provided.
Some 82 per cent of those surveyed couldn’t identify any further improvements, a big increase on the 21per cent asked the same question in 2012.
National waste firm SITA, which has managed the sites for the council since 2011, has invested £130,000, with the council also making significant contribution.
70 per cent of waste taken to the centre is recycled, exceeding the 65 per cent target.
